It’s been a long time coming, but it’s finally happened: Benfica has received an official offer from Chelsea yesterday of €127 million for Enzo Fernandez. The Spanish midfielder has been a key figure in the Portuguese side’s success over the past few years, and his departure will undoubtedly leave a big hole in the team.
The offer is a big one, and it looks like it could be too good to turn down. Rui Costa, the club’s sporting director, has reportedly been trying to convince Enzo to stay, but the player himself has made it clear that he wants to sign for Chelsea.
The move will be a big change for Enzo, who has been with Benfica for the past four seasons. He has been a regular starter for the club, playing an important role in their success in the Portuguese Primeira Liga, as well as in the Champions League and the Europa League.
Enzo Fernandez is one of the most exciting young talents in Europe, and his skill-set has been coveted by some of the biggest clubs in the world. Chelsea have been tracking him for some time, and they’ve finally made their move.
Enzo will now join a Chelsea side that has recently been undergoing a period of transition. They have recently appointed Graham Potter as their new manager, and the club is looking to make a statement in the transfer market. Enzo’s signing could be the start of a new era of success at the club.
The Argentine midfielder and the recent World Cup winner is set to sign a contract until June 2028, meaning he will be part of the club for the foreseeable future. He will be joining a team that already has a number of talented players, and his addition should only strengthen their squad.
This move will be a big blow for Benfica, who have not only lost one of their best players but also a key figure in their recent success. Enzo will be missed, but the club will now have to look to the future and find a way to replace him.
It’s a bittersweet moment for Benfica, but all the best to Enzo Fernandez as he embarks on the next chapter of his career.
